 Grin  Here's one for you boys
Forgive me if this seems a little boastful but I been trying to do this for ages
Nice groups are nice but in the money zone is really nice!
100 yards this morning, a bit of light breeze right to left across my range - nice clear day - eyes workin not so bad, this 76 has tormented me at times - I laid it in the sun on the back of the lounge right close to the window this morning for half an hour, nicely warm but not hot to handle - a fouler in the berm then hunkered down and shot 5 - no scope to distract me - pulled one a little bit high and right but pretty good result. 
The load -
70 grains of my own FFg powder, drop tube - light compression
60 thou x 461 HDPE overpowder wad (I cut those from the sides of 15 litre water container.)
CBE (Cast Bullet Engineering) 460-535PB boolit, pan lubed and unsized --I lathe turned the base band and one lube groove OFF of it and weighs now a whisker over 470 grains (will order a new mold cut the same today)
Boolit is seated with one lube groove and a third of the second band exposed and of course these longuns are a single load deal

NOT crimped but I made two swage dies
 1) with about a two degree taper I use to turn the bell mouth back in after loading on this case and the 45-70 and
 2) a straight die that gives me .4835 to .4840 overall neck diameter - I run that one to the base of the neck as the last operation in loading
My brass is formed from 348W shells and its thick in the neck - a pretty slick (only just) fit in my rifle - I dont resize my cases - if those necks get out to .485 they are right stiff or will not chamber!

"...  Someone on the Colt forum spoke with Standard a few weeks ago and were told that they had produced 1000 units, sold out and had suspended production and stopped taking orders for now "

imagine  that !   another wishful SAA made of Unobtanium ....don't hold your breath  Lips Sealed

I did this one for friend on old relic 1816 Springfield early percussion conversion.
it had had been cut down already and was bent above this final cut.... 

It was missing chunk of wood under forward ramrod opening ( which was replaced by inletting )
the Rawhide is for looks as an Indian field repair....

I could see if he will part with it  Undecided

A buddy bought one off of academy sports website last month. 26 or 28 I dont remember which. I tried to and it wasnt on there anymore. They checked and their website is a direct link to sports south and when they are out of stock they get pulled. He told me they will be back when  Instock.

WTB Wall hanger Flintlock or percussion rifle

I'm looking for an old flintlock or percussion rifle, repro probably since a real old one would cost a bunch. It's to hang on the wall, not shootable is just fine. It's just for my son's house.

Thanks Rye Cool

A squib??  A squib with BP??  Pullese .........

Exactly! He is a competent rifle shooter, but not a 'speed' shooter. His match pistols are a '60 Army and a Walker '47. Sound like a race gunner to you?

Yo CHT  Cheesy

I have had occasion of late to speak with a couple of folks whom are suppose to be "in the know."  Best information on the street at this juncture is ....... Colt isn't producing and SAA.  None.  Nada.  Zip (whoops bad choice wurd).  There is no "Custom Shop" any more, the previous Custom Shop Foreman has needed a new resume.  To further improve market share, Colt sold off ALL their stock parts.  Any "new" Colt that is being found is actually "New - Old Stock" having been squirreled away to capitalize on inflating prices.  As far as the SAA goes, Colt is just as Dodo as USFA.

Wouldn't surprise me one bit if Baretta/Uberti didn't buy the Colt Moniker just for grins and giggles.  Although Uberti has taken steps most recent that won't contribute at all to their bottom line nor market share.

    Wouldn't it be funny.....or some other appropriate adjective, if someone bought rights to the Colt name? Wonder if they'd sell or would they be nit...picked....to....death, like Standard's?

  Thanks for the info.
